We are absolutely delighted to welcome you to our residency!
Wesley Family Medicine has a tradition of training well-rounded full-scope family physicians for practice in any setting. As one of the first four family medicine residencies in the country, the Wesley curriculum set the standard for the programs that followed.
We are based at a large, university-affiliated medical center featuring high-risk obstetrics, a level I trauma center, a nationally recognized NICU, a state-of-the-art outpatient clinic, and much more.
Wesley Medical Center delivers more babies than any other hospital in a 13-state region and ranks in the 99th percentile in the nation for deliveries.
With the resources and support provided by the University of Kansas School of Medicine-Wichita, Wesley Family Medicine Residency offers the hands-on experience to prepare you for your practice goals, whatever they may be.
We know everyone has different goals for his or her family medicine career. Is your dream to run a hospital in Alaska or practice full-scope international mission medicine? Do you want to become an inpatient hospitalist or practice full-scope OB with c-sections and operative deliveries?
From outpatient private practice to full-scope family medicine, if you can dream it, we can easily provide you with the training needed to become the family doctor you want to be. We’re happy you are here.
Congratulations to Dr. Ruth Weber, WFM Associate Program Director, on achieving the status of Certified Medical Director from the American Medical Directors Association!
Congratulations to Dr. John Dorsch, WFM Clinic Preceptor, on being named
a 2014 Health Care Educator Hero by the Wichita Business Journal!

My favorite memory of Wesley FM is watching the Class of 2013 residents serenade the current PG3s with
“Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da” at the 2010 graduation ceremony. I have video of this if you’d like to see it.”
“My favorite memory of Wesley FM is the day fellow resident Dr. Vaughn and I were involved in a precipitous,
unattended delivery…on the bathroom floor. When you gotta go, you gotta go.”

“My favorite memory of Wesley FM is attending the PG1 ropes course.
It was awesome and a great opportunity to further develop relationships with other interns.”
“My favorite memory of Wesley FM is seeing residents help those who are short on time, too busy or just having a bad day.
I also enjoy sharing dinner with residents while on call – no one will let you go hungry!”

I will always remember how they keep us encouraged when we are having a bad day.”
